Birthday flowers, fabric and hammer.....The Unknown Path

My first try at flower pounding on white mercerized cotton! The flowers used were pink roses that I received on my 50th birthday! They turned out bluish purple - The raw edged background is an eggplant colored crushed satin
Other surface design elements: stamped images of the "character" made with my own hand cut stamp, using a purple Colorbox stamp pad; I pressed the stamp pad itself on the cloth; Setacolor and Lumiere paints dabbed here and there; beads strung on copper wire; painted silk mesh under the text, which says:

"We long for a path that we know, but are
given what is unfamiliar - so that which
is sacred in us can rise up and be our
guide." julaine
